    My old mountain bike was stolen prior to a trip to Mexico, does anyone here recommend a good, but somewhat affordable mountain bike? I was thinking of a Schwinn...because that was my previous bike, and worked excellently, however, would like to keep options open....
    Money can spend: $250-$750.
    Oh..anyone have one of those Honda bikes?

    I'll chime in....I probably would stay away from Schwinn as they aren't what they used to be anymore. They are only sold in bargain-type stores now (the new ones, I mean). I'd stick with the main players like Trek, Specialized, etc.

    You can get a lot of bike with $750 these days.

    Trek 4500 . $400 or so. Good bike for the money if you are not going extreme off road.

    Awesome..thanks for the input! Have you by chance heard of the Micargi? It apparently is a bike that seems rather good for its price....the M3000 full suspension mountain bike w/ disc brakes. Anywho...it seems like a nice bike....The ad keeps mentioning the quality of the bikes parts..
    The manufacturer apparently being..Shimano..
    ring a bell?
